Fantastic and always consistent...a cozy little neighborhood gem!👍🏼
As soon as I leave, I already can’t wait to go to Metropolis Cafe again! One of my most favorite restaurants in the city!!
Consistently outstanding food. Very friendly service. Metropolis Cafe is turning into our favorite local restaurant!
Great food, great service. Charming locale.
Food was delicious, and the service was kind and helpful. Had a great experience!
We always have an excellent meal at this neighborhood gem. The only downside is the the valet parking is across and down the street and tends to be extremely slow.
My favorite Boston go-to..always good from truffled butter through amazing chocolate dessert
We have been eating at restaurants for well over fifty years. Four of us ate at Metropolis Café last Sunday, and the meal was the second poorest I have had in fifty years. Rarely do I write a poor restaurant review, but the meal last night was so bad, I felt I had write this.
Two of us had the meager cider-braised short rib, which was dry, stringy and tough. The meat was served on a bed of a tepid, tasteless white puree, said to be potato – perhaps made from a box product. The two were surrounded by a thin, tasteless brown liquid. The puree was topped by two ostensibly roasted carrots. One was partially cooked, raw in the center and the second could not have been in an oven for more than a few minutes. Neither had been roasted with any meat juice, butter and anything that could provide flavor. There was no seasoning to be tasted.
My wife had the squash and apple non-risotto “risotto”. The risotto was made with plain, white rice, seemingly cooked in water, not a vegetable broth, and served over a bland squash puree. Mild chunks of apple were mixed in the rice. Most uninteresting, and my wife left most of the dish uneaten.
The highlight of the meal was the bread, possibly Iggy’s, which we all ate as the meal mainstay. One of us asked for butter, which was served as patties wrapped in foil.
The cost of the meal was excessive. The service was good, friendly, but not overly so. The wait for the dishes was long, perhaps 20-30 minutes, especially so since none of the dishes was likely cooked to order. It is difficult to believe this restaurant can survive for long. There must be far superior restaurants in the South End.
Excellent every time. We count on a good time when we are lucky enough to get a reservation.
Still one of the best in South End after all these years! Neighborhood gem!!
Service and food was great. We love the size of the restaurant.
The food here is interesting and always well prepared. It has a very nice, cozy neighborhood feel.
just love Metropolis! The ambiance is cozy and special, the staff is welcoming and the food amazing!
everything we ate was a 10!! I had the short ribs-so tender and delicious and my husband had the roasted marinated chicken-also moist and favorable
Always good. I go there often. The road chicken is beyond delicious.
Just love this restaurant!!!!
I am never disappointed about anything when I eat at this amazing neighborhood restaurant! The wine, food and service are always wonderful. Kale salad—yum! Salmon and whatever veg/couscous side was so good. Thank you for another wonderful evening!
Consistently good. Only drawback we noted was desserts were not as good as meal, etc.
Loved the dinning experience. Alejandro who served us was friendly and checked each time we received our appitizer, dinner and dessert!
Great service and food is always perfectly prepared
Excellent food, nice space/ambiance, OK re value . . . but server rushed us, very impatient (maybe the place was understaffed on NYE). Still, I would return in a minute.
Excellent- New Year’s Eve dinner. Great way to welcome 2019. Great atmosphere, service and food! Thank you!
Excellent food and great service. The perfect ambience for a celebration.
We enjoyed our dinners and appreciated the excellent service.
Great atmosphere with amazing and consistent food! The prices are a little high but I prefer to spend more for high quality good. This place is great for a date or casual dining. The only downside I can think of for this place is if you don’t have a reservation, you may end up at the bar, which can be a little chilly at the stools closest to the door during the winter, even though they do try to keep it warm by having velvet curtains at the entrance.
Love Metropolis. Great food, awesome service and value. Can't wait to go back.
Delicious meal. Great service. Wonderful ambiance.
Great meal all around. Food and drinks top notch, and service excellent. Warm and cozy as well. Only wish it was in our neighborhood.
The food and service is always wonderful! Can't wait to come back!
We love this restaurant, it never disappoints. But because it is so small, the table turnover, even with a res,
can be slow. But worth it.
As always, it did not disappoint. This is a favorite go to restaurant, with the best veal scallopini in Boston, and the best brussel sprouts appetizer. Casual, friendly bistro atmosphere, lively but not too noisy to carry on real conversations.
Loved the Atlantic Cod, Short Ribs and a side of Truffle Mashed potatoes was so delicious!
Can always count on a great dinner-great staff
The waiter was very helpful and friendly. He answered a bunch of questions and is a reason I'd go back. Food was good. Our party had brussel sprout app, short ribs, steak, rigatoni and fish. All good. Ambiance was good. Prices for mains seemed very reasonable, but appetizers and wine struck me as a being on the expensive side, which may have been the only negative from our visit.
Drinks, food, and service were outstanding
The service was good even though we felt a bit stressed by the staff. We were allowed to taste the wines we were interested in before deciding, which was nice. Food was good (had salmon tartar and risotto). Try their prix fixe between 5:30 and 6:30.
Great as always. Thanks team!
Great food - service was fine. It is noisy - but we were pretty load ourselves - such is the nature of a place this small.
